SummaryOf six grass species analysed,Melinis minutiflora (molasses grass) showed the highest anti-tick deterrent properties whileAndropogon gayanus (Gamba grass) exhibited the ability to maintain a defined, constantly low, initial host tick infestation property and lengthy but low to moderate field tick population.It was concluded thatMelinis minutiflora is a species which would best be used in a tick control package within a marginal tick zone whileAndropogon gayanus has the advantage within an endemic tick zone.RésuméDes six plantes étudiées c'est leMelinis minutiflora qui a montré l'activité préventive la plus élevée tandis queAndropogon gayanus (Gamba grass) a montré son aptitude à maintenir à un niveau constant et correct une infestation initiale peu élevée.En conclusionMilinis minutiflora est une espèce à utiliser de préférence pour le contrôle des tiques dans les zones où l'infestation est marginale tandis queAndropogon gayanus est à préférer pour lutter dans les zones où l'infestation par les tiques revêt un caractère endémique.ResumenDe seis pastos analizados,Melinis minutiflora (pasto Gordura) tuvo las propiedades más altas para el control de garrapatas, mientras que elAndropogon gayanus (pasto Gamba), tuvo la abilidad de mantener una población inicial definida y constantemente baja de garrapatas en el huésped, y una prolongada, entre baja y moderada, población de garrapatas en el campo.Se concluyó, que el pasto Gordura, es la mejor especie para el control de garrapatas en una zona marginal, mientras que el pasto Gamba tiene mejores ventajas en zonas endémicas.
